Chateau Martin is a classic Saint-Estephe that is sure to please. On the nose, it has inviting aromas of pencil shavings, ripe dark berries, black stone fruit, and blackcurrant spurs, with a touch of spice. On the palate, it has good length and is medium-bodied, with juicy fruit and fine toasting. The herbal, crisp red fruits and discreet spiciness suggest that this wine should be consumed in its youth and at an ambient temperature of 16 to 18 degrees Celsius. The beautifully balanced palate expresses notes of juicy cassis, blackberry, cherry, violet, and a racy minerality, with touches of cardamom and mild tobacco leaf. Enjoy this elegant wine for its pleasing character and well-rounded structure.
